Philadelphia Eagles Roster
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) is still not cleared for contact on Thursday. It's looking like Howard is in line to miss his fourth straight game unless he can get in a full practice on Friday or Saturday. Rookie Miles Sanders had a season-high 22 touches in the Week 13 loss to the Dolphins and continues to be the primary ball-handler in the backfield with Howard sidelined. Although the Giants defensive front has been stingy to running backs of late, Sanders would have RB2 upside yet again this week if Howard misses another game. Making things even tougher for Howard owners is the fact that the game this week is on Monday night.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor (knee) did not take part in practice on Thursday. Agholor returned in the Week 13 loss to the Dolphins and had an underwhelming three catches for 41 yards in the embarrassing defeat. He's not a lock to play on Monday night against the Giants, and even if he does, he's a low-upside WR4/flex in deeper leagues. Agholor just hasn't proven to be much of a producer unless Alshon Jeffery misses time with injury. If Agholor can't go this week, rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who caught his first touchdown of his career last Sunday, would see an even bigger role in the passing game.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has an excellent matchup for Week 14. Despite several disappointing performances this season, Wentz is still an easy QB1 choice against the New York Giants Defense. Despite a loss to the hapless Dolphins, Wentz still threw for three touchdowns and 310 yards in Week 13. A similar performance is possible this week, leading to Wentz being ranked somewhere in the middle of QB1 ranks.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi isn't expected to contribute much and likely won't have a fantasy-relevant role in Week 14. If Jordan Howard (shoulder) is forced to miss another game, rookie Miles Sanders will have a near every-down role in the Eagles backfield. Ajayi has totaled just eight touches since joining the team. Any tiny bit of fantasy value Ajayi may have will be washed away upon Howard's return.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders will look to keep rolling in Week 14 against the New York Giants. Coming off an over-100 yards from scrimmage outing against the Dolphins, Sanders could be looking for more of the same against the Giants. While the Giants Defense hasn't been anything special all year, they have been easier to attack through the air than on the ground. Sanders is a solid RB2, especially in PPR leagues, but will take a slight hit to his value if Jordan Howard (shoulder) is able to play on Monday night.
